PIERS Morgan boasted he’s more expensive than new Manchester United signing Cristiano Ronaldo as fans begged him to return to Good Morning Britain.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, 36, has just signed a two-year deal with the Premier League club worth £480,000 a week.
One overjoyed fan thought there was only one way the Portuguese star’s return could be made better.
They wrote on Twitter: “The only thing that could top ronaldo back at united is @piersmorgan returning to @GMB. Come on piers sort it out.”
It caught Piers’s eye, with him retweeting it and adding: “[laughing emoji] I’m more expensive than Ronaldo.”
Piers quit GMB back in March after clashing with co-star Alex Beresford live on air over his comments about Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview.
He has since appeared in episodes of his Life Stories programme on ITV and writes for the Mail, but he has yet to return to telly in a regular role.
Arsenal fan Piers, a long-time admirer of Ronaldo, tweeted his happiness over the transfer, even if he wasn’t going to his club.
He said: “BREAKING: It’s official – the great Cristiano Ronaldo is rejoining Manchester United. Brilliant to see the GOAT back in the Premier League.
“Congrats & welcome back my friend @cristiano.”
The pair previously enjoyed a sit-down interview during which the footballer complimented Piers’s abs.
It was a moment he often referred back to while hosting GMB.
